Hametz brings urban design into perspective for Baltimore’s future

"We have a very high standard, and we work very hard to chase that standard. It’s a constant work in progress."

In our holiday search to tell some great stories and learn more during the end of this decade, we are presenting some “bonus” Baltimore Positive while Nestor searches the Far East for answers.

In our many walks around Baltimore over the years, we’re always struck by how places and spaces change – and how that transition happens with urban designers and redevelopment and use of land.

Isaac Hametz is Principal and Research Director at Mahan Rykiel Associates. He collaborates with clients and strategic partners to study, imagine, and shape landscapes that enrich the human condition and support vibrant natural systems. His work emphasizes ecological integrity, economic uplift, and cultural identity.

That sounds kinda heavy so we found Hametz to learn more about a local company doing big things to change our skyline but also the way we use urban space.

Like the part about Pierce’s Park at the Inner Harbor.

(Nestor really loved this chat!)

We have taken some time this month to add some “holiday bonus” editions of Baltimore Positive that will be coming your way into December with Marty Schwartz, Cheryl Bost, Mike Ertel, Debbie Phelps, Isaac Hametz and Frank Kolarek in addition to our long-form chats with Adrienne Jones, Sonja Santelises and the incomparable Wes Moore.

Nestor and Don are also preparing a very special Episode 100 coming later this week…

We’d be “thankful” this holiday season if you subscribe to Baltimore Positive and make it a part of your weekly routine!

OUR NEXT BIG EVENT:

(Yes…you are invited to join us!)

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12: New Baltimore police commissioner Michael Harrison joins us at Faidley’s Seafood in Lexington Market at noon.

We want to thank all of our sponsors, supporters and friends who have allowed this Baltimore Positive platform and movement to become part of your lives and routine. And thank you for sharing our conversations with your community and world!

Hope to see you around Baltimore soon!
